TOKYO & SAN DIEGO, Nov 13, 2007 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- DIVX | charts | news | PowerRating -- DivX, Inc. (NASDAQIVX) today announced that DivX® video technology will be integrated into PLAYSTATION®3 (PS3™) from Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCE). The popular computer entertainment system will be added to the ecosystem of devices that currently support DivX video playback. To date, over 100 million DivX Certified® products have been shipped into the market, and it is anticipated PS3 will significantly expand that number.

"We are excited to work with Sony Computer Entertainment to bring DivX to PS3," said Kevin Hell, CEO of DivX, Inc. "Our technology will expand the multimedia functionality of PS3 by enabling users to enjoy access to the broad library of content in the DivX digital media format."

Products that bear the DivX Certified logo have undergone a rigorous testing program to ensure a high-quality DivX media experience that includes reliable video playback and excellent visual quality. DivX is currently working to certify PS3 and deliver a superior digital media technology to consumers in the near future. Current PS3 end users will be able to add DivX functionality to their systems via a separate system software update at a forthcoming date. PS3 game title developers will be able to utilize DivX's decoder technology by updating the system software of PS3's Software Development Kit to version 2.00, which was released by SCE on November 2nd.

Woah!!! This just adds to the reasons why to own a PS3. 1. Blu-ray. 2. Divx! Woot!

Sad thing though, Xbox 360 will be getting Divx as well I'm sure, lol. But hey, you gotta do something with your $600 paper weight, and watching movies is the best thing! :lol:

Something slipped the other day about DivX on the 360 but was quickly shot down/retracted.

Why do you do this in every thread? If you don't think the PS3 has any good games, fine, but shut the hell up and stop ruining every thread with your "paperweight" argument.

He's the biggest troll at CAG in the PS3 forum. I learned to ignore him long ago, which is why I don't bother with his posts. ;)

I've been streaming divx, xvid, mkv, ogm,h264 and everything and the kitchen sink on my 6 year old modded 200 dollar xbox. The modded xbox has to be the best multimedia player of the last decade. I think I'll cry when it finally dies.

Really? I've heard that it can't handle most h.264 files, due to its relatively slow processor. I hope either the 360 or the PS3 eventually gets an XBMC-like media player. I just want to get the damned computer out of my living room.

I have an Xbox, and it can handle some h.264 files, but for the most part, it plays them with major skipping/slowdown/stuttering. Rewinding or fastwording also causes it to crash. Funny how an iPod Nano can play those files but not an Xbox.

The 360 and the PS3 will never be as robust as XBMC. There's no money in it for MS/Sony to do so.

My dumb thought of the day:

PS3 BitTorrent. Just like folding@home, but it downloads torrents instead. Sony can market a PS3 with a huge harddrive, and I'll probably never turn it off.

yeah it doesn't play most but then again most computers have trouble with 1080p h.264 too. still, xbmc has been the best thing I ever paid to get modded. I'm waiting for someone to crack the ps3 and add our own codecs.

So was Divx supposed to be included in the 2.0 update???

I hope I was reading that right.

If so, has anyone been able to confirm it?
